The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have finished their regular season with a perfect 10-0 record that included a 47-40 victory over then #1 Clemson Tigers, and now we get another week off from college football.
But there’s still college football to be played — even if most of it means absolutely nothing.
Some of the games still scheduled to be played today that I’ll highlight:
- Georgia Bulldogs @ Missouri Tigers — 12:00 PM
- Navy Midshipmen @ Army Black Knights — 3:00 PM
- North Carolina Tar Heels @ Miami-Florida Hurricanes — 3:30 PM
- LSU Tigers @ Florida Gators — 7:00 PM
This will be the first time since 1943 that Army-Navy will be played at West Point.
It is what it is.
As you sit there today knowing that the Irish will be no less than #2 in the college football playoff if they win the ACC Championship next week, and likely #4 in the college football playoff should they lose the ACC Championship game... please also know that the Notre Dame football program has been REALLY damn good over the last 4 years.
Oh yeah, and just as a reminder. This is from 4 years ago. Only 6 losses since this embarrassing “ad” was created pic.twitter.com/UFPvt1sXXG— Matt (@mattygOFD) December 7, 2020
It’s just incredible how different the narrative is now. What’s that? Brendan has something about the narrative? Yes, yes he does:
So, enjoy the day — whatever the day provides for you. Next week the Irish travel to Charlotte to take on the Clemson Tigers for the 2nd time this year, and we also have National Signing Day for the Early Period on Wednesday. It’s going to be L-I-T.
The game thread is open below. I know many of us are on Twitter for most of the game, but I encourage you to vent and do other things that require more than 280 characters here.
